Jack Turley, a teacher, and Keith Phipps, a principal, were charged with contaminating the building with enough meth to shut it down until further notice.
According to West Virginia state police, Turley and Phipps were under investigation this spring when officers found traces of meth in the ducts, the principal's office, the hallways, and the bathrooms at the Boone County Career and Technical Center.
